    The Peace Arch itself, dedicated in 1921, was the first such structure in the world. It was built on the international boundary between Canada and the United States to commemorate the lasting peace between the two countries. School children from both countries donated money for the purchase of the land surrounding the Peace Arch and, in 1939, the Canadian portion of Peace Arch Park was officially dedicated.
